FCP RED wokflows for feature films.
I must say I've conformed projects in Premiere Pro using native R3D files but now involved in a project using FCP7.
I came "late to the party" where editing had started on transcodes from R3D to prores had already been done. I'm not editing but trying supervise the final conform, from what i can see the project has been broken down into reels for ease of editing and final assembly.
My questions are :
1) I can export an XML of a sequence from FCP into REDCine X and everything links fine but I loose my speed changes and cropping information. Am I doing something wrong?
2) They are re-shooting some scenes, and I best to create the Quicktime files for FCP from REDCine X?
3) The finishing house who is doing the final conform and grade for free is an Avid house, am I best to just give them DPX sequences of the FCP sequences and string them together there for grading or is there some "voodoo" I can do to get the sequence info into Avid and relink and conform from there?
4) What was the traditional FCP workflow as I can't find the initial white paper?
Please don't flame me for asking such stupid questions but it's doing my head in.
